Multiple Units malfunctioning in same way, don’t buy.
Tateu, 02.07.2019
I bought this after watching many good reviews. On the paper, the thing that I needed for long. But this (version of) controller has a critical flaw: when you hold a note, the controller outputs random midi notes, which is really annoying.
Tried without any USB data transmission (on USB charger). Tried updating the firmware (constructor software did not work). Complained to Thomann. Got a second unit and it also does the same thing. Complained to Thomann harder once again. Got a third unit from another seller. Same flaw. Therefore not a problem from Thomann (who was in fact very reactive).
I am upset to return this because I really like the compact design, the idea of combining aftertouch, tilt, and lighting keys (possibility to send MIDI from computer was very appealing to do interesting stuffs), but the controller is not usable with this flaw.
I did some research, find another guy with the same issue and a similar experience.

I am thinking that maybe only the last items produced by Keith McMillen have this flaw because only his comment is recent.

First I need to say about stunning reliability of this deivce. I've been using K-Board now for 2 years in my portable studio. It travelled to different countries, in different bags, but survived everything and still works as new.

I wouldn't recommend K-Board as primary MIDI-controller because using its pads feels too much different from normal keys (and significantly less responsive), and you need some time to adjust to it. But for a portable setup (or as secondary, more experimental keybord) it performs just perfectly.

Great tool
Sam D, 20.02.2018
Solid build and nice profile for sitting atop other keyboards or gear - the toggle mode makes this the perfect solution for me for latching pads/atmospheres/sequences etc behind what I'm playing for live use. That's essentially all I was looking for in this tool and it does the job perfectly, especially with the visual feedback from the keys themselves.

Just what I was looking for
29.12.2016
I use this both for tinkering with ideas in my DAW and recording quick loops in my live setup. Load up an instrument and immediately play around with some notes and chords. Its the same width as my 13" macbook air and built very solidly.

All the features work great. The dedicated button for switching the velocity sensitivity on and off I find very useful and the included software allows you to change all of the parameters to suit you (velocity sensitivity, pressure sensitivity, tilt range etc.)

As someone who never learned to play the piano this is perfect for me as it helps me figure out chords and nice notes quickly and most importantly enjoyable. I sold my 49 key midi keyboard for this and have to say I'm very happy I did as I find it so much more enjoyable to use.
